COVID-19 Vaccine Update
Chief Lunt along with several other first responders from the Forney Police and Fire departments and other members of the 1A and 1B phases received the COVID-19 vaccine from our partners with Terrell State Hospital and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The folks on site delivering the vaccine were professional and kept the system moving forward very well!
First, we encourage and support receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. We understand that many of our citizens have experienced frustration in locating an available appointment. Don't give up and keep trying! As we continue to receive information from the Texas DSHS and Texas Department of Emergency Management, we will update our community with reliable, relevant information.
As you probably know, demand for the vaccine is very high, and shipments have been limited. Many communities across the State and nation have experienced these frustrations. At present, the best information we have to pass along is the Texas DSHS website, which shows all providers where you may be able to register for a vaccine. Again, when we have better information as it relates specifically to our community or local area, we will update you.
